Best headphones for Vocaloid/Touhou music.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

At the moment I have the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 and the M50, the AD700 is great for Touhou, but around the $100-$150 price range of below, are there any better alternatives to the AD700s for Touhou music. If anyone doesn't know what Touhou is here's a few clips. Thanks in advance! :D

I thought my Denon D2000 was pretty good for vocaloid music, but make sure not to overpay he sued they are discontinued. Based on graphs, I think the Sennheiser Momentum and Ultimate Ears 6000/9000 might be good as well - though I haven't had a chance to hear them.

Too much treble presence will destroy these Vocaloid songs with sibilance. Below $150 the AD700 and M50 are hard to beat. Up to $200 there are the HD 598, AD900 and DT770 which I find to work great for this kind of stuff.

Maybe look into:

 

TAD500

DT880 32ohm (used; see link)

HD558's

HE-300 (used?)

 

Very best,

I wouldn't go for the AD900 they are quite bass light and very bright, IMO.

I prefer bass light :) I actually prefer bass light on music that has bass on it, and I don't know what bright means, but if it means strong highs. Then I also like this xD I'm not much of an audiophile as you can tell. I also assumed that AD900 would just be an upgrade of the AD700

Okay, my choices are the:

Beyerdynamic DT 990 600ohm

Philips Fidelio L1

Beyerdynamic DT880 250ohm
ATH-AD900

 

Limited I know, which do you guys think I should go for?

these listed headphones are a no-no for those kinds of songs (i sometimes listen to them as well)

 

dt990 very sibilant

ad900 (somewhat sibilant and bass light, ALTHOUGH you can actually go for these though since you already have an AD700)

dt770 (its actually okay, since those kinds of songs usually bring the vocals forward, but you dont like bass heavy headphones)

 

 

these headphones are a go-go for the songs

 

hd598

he300 (make sure to buy the v2? or something)

L1

m50 (although sometimes sibilant with some badly recorded songs)

 

 

my recommendation based on my experience, doesnt matter if supraaural or circumaural since it is not stated hehe...

CAL! /d1001

vmoda m80

ATH ESW9

ATH ES7

 

if you already have an amp pairing with your headphones

a modded vintage ortho (miku is wearing a yamaha hp-1 in some of her PVs FYI, check the link out)

modded t50rp

Haha, nice thread here. I personally use 3 pairs of headphones/earbuds to listen to Vocaloid music, which is the majority of what I listen to and probably the majority of what I have. My mash up includes AKG K240 Studio, JVC HARX300 and a pair of Philips SHE9000/28. Depending on the situation, I'll be swapping between them. No real preference between any of them. All of them produce good sound, though the JVC HARX300 is kind of eh... low end. The rest are really nice.
